.9. >> brian: putting it in perspective, knowing the challenges were different for each president, john meacham, an historian, wrote the book on jefferson, weighed in with bill o'reilly. >> the most important line and not in the speech, it's the fall in media household income over the last 12 years. without rectifying that, this will be an unmemorable presidency and potentially a significantly -- >> how is he going to do that in three years? how is he gog remedy that, turn that around so that the regular folks start to make more money? it seems to me almost inconceivable. almost impossible with his policies. >> with his policies. but i think we're all to blame here. i really do. i think that a lot of people don't want to heart hard truth. people don't want to pay more tax. they don't want to see these cuts. they don't want to embrace the simpson bowles kind of proposals. these are hard choices. but guess what? you and i didn't run for president. he sought the job. it is now his solemn responsibility and i think he is a good man and i think you agree with that. it's his responsibility to lead us
, including governor john hickenlooper. >> we are a fully split state. we're almost exactly one-third democrat, one-third republican one-third independent. and there are strong points of resistance to going... you know, if you're going to try and do a ban or really serious restrictions on people's access to firearms. it's colorado, it's the west. and we are a diverse community within the west. >> reporter: there is no waiting period for gun purchases in colorado, and anyone over 21 can apply for a concealed weapons permit. hickenlooper supports expanding background checks in colorado to private gun sales, but has doubts about a proposed state ban of high-capacity ammunition magazines. >> of course, the devil's in the details. is that ten rounds or 30 rounds? and that's where the... that's where the robust discussion is going to come in. >> reporter: well, the shooting here in aurora has prompted the governor, scott, to propose an overhaul of the state's mental health system, an area he says has been neglected here in colorado. >> pelley: anna, thank you. yesterday, the president ordered the ce
. >> steve: meanwhile, let's take a look at john f. kennedy's inaugural back in the '60s. >> our country and all who serve it, and the globe from that-- and truly like the world and so, my fellow americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. and that was fantastic. >> it was. it's probably the single most memorable and quotable line in american presidential history and again, what's interesting, like fdr, the back drop for that speech was the cold war and we were actually losing it. we had lost in the space race early on to the soviets and feeling a bit demoralized and he was saying it's service to the country. >> steve: do we know who writes the speeches? is it general the white house speech shop that does that or did the president write this himself. >> the kennedy speech, and ted sorenson his long time speech writer often asked that and his line was did you write that speech? he would say ask not dot-dot-dot. the presidents like to put their own words to paper and suspect that president obama, too, will have a big hand in crafting it. >> st
people who will have. john:. neil: not illegal? >> i do not like the phrase but the republican party should be learned from this election cycle. neil: good point*. that could be the way to say let it go? >> that is exactly what the republicans should do. they lost seats in colorado and nationally they took a hit. neil: to rethink it was illegal immigration? >> that is how they were portrayed with the voters of color and with their position scare's people whistled deportation but these are children and did not choose to be undocumented their parents came here when they were young they should be allowed to go to a state school what colorado make this decision. neil: those so i have talked to say it gets out of control and trips over itself that they do not paid to those who are legal citizens. >> by a recent the term that it is basically describing what is taking place in kettle think it has to be a party issue republican vs. democrat i am interested in the education systemsum to make education affordable for everyone. >> the republicans vote along party lines every yearg neil: so it i
, and no u.s. arms for the syrian opposition. his choice for secretary of state senator john kerry has gone further. >> we should weigh the risks and benefits of establishing safe zones near syria's border areas. >> reporter: if syria's president bashar al assad unleashes his chemical weapons, a real scare that emerged late last year, mr. obama says he will retaliate. >> the world is watching. the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. >> reporter: countries that lived through the arab spring two years ago are morphing into a zone of instability. barack obama put his administration on the line for egypt's president mohamed morsi, a member of the muslim brotherhood. but egypt's economy is on the ropes. across the region, political storm clouds ar gathering as iran, israel and eight arab countries hold crucial elections this year. >> in every one of them, a new form of right, far, far right is emerging as to change the balance of power. >> reporter: in his first term, barack obama said he was making the middle east peace process a priority, but middle east expert aaron
person in the staff, they read a book called "rising tide," help me with the author? >> john berry. >> john berry. it is the history of how the mississippi river was changed to accommodate navigation and the impacts of the flood creating the conditions that we actually saw during hurricane katrina, but i highly recommend that. from our learnings in the gulf, what would you do to help develop resiliency in low income and rural communities that we know face disasters, especially in regards to the potential for hydrofracking? >> yeah. has not been asked a hard question yet. [laughter] >> that's a very good question. what i say we learned from the gulf and from similar disasters around the world is that it's really with social impact, fear about the chemicals or a whole series of different things that are fixable if we can improve our communication skills, our knowledge, and our willingness to share and tell the truth. to me, one of the most telling problems that came out of the gulf was was dispercent. how many of you heard of that? nearly everybody raises their hand. if i ask that on
not have a clear-cut name? joe johns has been looking into this part of the story for us. it's getting a little complicated. so explain what you're finding out, joe. >> wolf, it's being called the biggest push in a generation on gun control but a lot of the ideas the president put forth yesterday has been kicked around since the 1990s and frankly in a lot of ways it's not clear what the white house wants to do and how they want to do it. the president's gun safety proposals sound ambitious but policywise it's difficult to assess without more details, starting with this. >> restore a ban on military-style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. >> which would be illegal is impossible to know until the white house defines assault weapon. when a ban passed in 1994 it came down to what it looked like. for example, do they have folding or telescoping stocks and grips and so on. officials admit it was far from perfect. >> it was hard to enforce it. as a result many people did that and, you know he have vaded the law. >> will only manufacturers be ban
. >> mayor john cook from el paso. from the panel, how important is it to present reform in his state of the city redress? >> it's extremely important. as i mentioned the opening, and, it has to be opened up and placed on track to not everybody knows in the united states of america, everybody today named, they have to know at the time has come to address the very serious issue and also tell the real story and the positive impact we have. we know that when you talk about billions of dollars being generated, hard-working people, people willing to do any type of job to support families, people want to work hard to support their case said they become engineers, scientists, this is the time. i think it has to be perhaps carved in a positive way, saying this is the right thing. it's absolutely important for president obama. it's the right time to make those comments. >> mayor, occasionally a nice, good policy and good politics come together in the right time and that's exactly what's going on with immigration reform. it's been a very public policy for a long time. now the politics seem to b
beloved by everyone on capitol hill. john mccain said he would endorse him. that will go through without controversy. both of these men will be confirmed easily. people think the secretary of defense choice is a signal that we will not be as aggressive as somewhat like in defending israel. host: minimum wage. do you expect those issues to gcome up>? guest: the campaign was focused on jobs. the relative lack of direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. this was not a set of policy proposals. there will be more about this in the state of the union. it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address he gave yesterday. as far as labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the states. there is a national political aspect to this. i do not know what plans they have for some of these issues. it was interesting yesterday that obama singled out issues like ensuring that women get equal pay as a key part of the principles he was trying to establish. host: republicans in the house and the senate, what are they saying on this? guest
. here is senator john barrasso speaking on fox news this morning. >> we have a spending problem in this country. people all across the country know it. they know it in wyoming. families have to balance their budget every year. many states do. we do in wyoming. it is time for the senate and the house and the president to get serious about limiting our spending and specifically the wasteful spending that continues. >> reporter: earlier this week we heard from house majority whip, minority whip, i should say, steny hoyer, increased revenues, more spending has to be part of any debt ceiling deal. that is a sentiment echoed by the president on numerous occasions since he was reelected. republicans of course in the house are set to go on their retreat this week. their key objective is to find unity. that is the ultimate object tiff for the retreat. without unity and republicans are divided in house they stand no chance of blocking any tax increases that democrats are so intent on. jenna: we'll watch in the weeks to come, doug, thank you. >> reporter: okay. jon: new troubles for boeing
an inaugural address. >> we want to welcome john mcconnell. thanks for being with us. this is from the washington examiner, the obama highlights the challenges. this is from the "chicago tribune" no time to waste in a second term and more aggressive obama may seek quick wins on the big issues. those issues will be framed tomorrow. what will we hear? guest: i'm excited to hear it as i know you are. that headline "no time to waste" makes me think of president clinton's inaugural address. saying it would be wrong to waste the gift of time. the second inaugural is about continuity. the president has been in office, his time is half finished and he is more conscious than ever before of the passing of time. therefore, is going to be infatic about his great ambitions and goals for the country. but by the same token, i don't think it will be policy specific speech only because inaugural addresses can't cover that kind of ground. people don't expect it to. it is at a higher level, an aspirational level, a bit of description as what we've gone through as a country in the last four years. pre
house. dennis: joining us from both sides of the aisle, republican congressman john flemming of louisiana and democratic congressman john yarmouth of kentucky. congressman fleming, yarn and ardent proponent of gun rights. what did you think of the president's announcement today? >> beyond that, i am also a physician. i served as a coroner. and i have dealt with mental health quite a bit in my career. i think these executive actions or orders sounds like beefing up law enforcement. i have no problem with that. the devil is in the details. on the other hand what the president is calling for is again things we have done in the past, going after the guns, going after the criminals and, after assault weapons. the focus needs to be people doing the shooting. every case where we have mass murder we find a severely mentally ill mentally deranged person. we need to do a lot more in beefing up our mental health and also be more proactive in keeping people away from weapons and in this case these were legally purchased weapons he got from his mother. his mother should not have allowed h
hearing will begin for her possible replacement, senator john kerry. brian? >>brian: one of the most patriotic organizations in our nation making it their business to find jobs for our veterans every day who are wounded in battle. now they are calling on the government to do the same thing. lieutenant general, what is the government not doing that you are? >> i think right now one of the major problems is that the government and the public sector and private sectors are not reintegrating our disabled veterans back into local communities. they have a large role to play, both the veterans affairs, as well as the department of labor. i was in d.c. here the last couple of days. we've been working with them to help fill that gap. >>brian: in what way? it's hard enough getting jobs right now in this economy. veterans' unemployment is a little bit higher than the national rate. then you have people who are dealing with some type of wound as they try to get back into the workforce. do we have to curry the jobs towards their skills? >> no, i don't think so. i think these disabled veterans bri
